There is this girl at work who is obviously jealous of me. From the beginning on she has been making rude comebacks at me and try to make me look ''as the bad person'' . I work at a pizza place and whenever im working with her she always tries to take control because she does this full-time and acts as if im lazy. I m willling to communicate and learn but she won't let me because she thinks ''i can't handle it''. I'm a very attractive girl and male customers also notice that and i have feeling she is extremely jealous of me. I have kept my mouth shut because im not a dramatic person but this taking it too far. She kept saying oh do this and i did that oh no do that, i did that, oh no help me out with this i can't do this on my own, i helped her, oh no your not doing it right... i think she has different reasons for ''hating'' on me. What should i do? she is trying to bring out the worst in me!

The main thing is to stay calm and collected and let people see how she is acting. They'll figure it out as time goes on and your regulars will see that she is being vindictive. Next time she barges into a customer interaction and wants to take over you can simply stay calm and say "I'll be fine" then if she barges in just let her and look at the customers and shrug. Let her take the transaction then ask her "Do you need any help?" and let her negative attitude do the talking. The customers will see it and you'll look better because you're not working yourself up like she is. She'll basically be embarrassing herself and eventually a customer will comment to you about how nasty she seems. The more she lashes out at you while you remain unresponsive to it the worse she will look.
After that next time your boss is around point out how you feel she's being negative and that it is gonna interfere with the customer experience and that she's potentially harming the team chemistry. Relate as much of your concerns back to the customers and you won't look vindictive like she is.0
